I’ve been shopping Retro Inferno now for the last seven years or so. The owner, Rod Parks, had a funky little space on the edge of downtown with some really cool mid-century pieces. A couple of years ago he moved to this great space; fortunately for him our downtown is on a bit of an up-turn – including the new Sprint Center, which will be right out his front door.
Retro Inferno – 1500 Grand, KCMO
Sprint Center – opening Fall, 2007
You might have noticed, my house is a bit of a hodge podge as I have a tendancy to fall deeply in love with pieces which have very little to do with one another. Here are a few of my Retro Inferno finds:
Unmarked mid-century vase (and, yes, I need to do a little silver polishing.)
Lucite stool – I looked forever for this one.
A set of 6 Norman Cherner chairs – they swivel – the boys love them.
So what? Well, lucky for you (and as it turns out, me) Retro Inferno is having a SALE! And I don’t mean a measly 10% off outrageous prices, no sir. Dunbar sofa regularly $2400 is $995. Saarinen oval dining table reduced from $2800 to $1600.
Some of Rod’s amazing inventory.
Cane and chrome and glass, oh, my.
One of a pair.
I mean, you want them all, right?
Sound crazy? Well, no. Ron is going to be sharing space with another jazzy, KC retailer, Hudson Home, so he’s having to make a bit of room. Log on to see his inventory – there’s lots more there so it’s worth an e:mail if you are on the hunt for something special. Oh, and those Fornasetti tables?
The ones that say, “SOLD?”
Mine, all mine.
